Dr. Kenzo Tenma is a renowned young brain surgeon of Japanese descent working in Europe. Highly lauded by his peers as one of the great young minds that will revolutionize the field, he is blessed with a beautiful fiancé and is on the cusp of a high promotion in the hospital he works at. However, all of that is about to change with one critical decision that Dr. Tenma faces one night—whether to save the life of a young child or that of the town's mayor. Despite being pressured by his superiors to perform surgery on the mayor, his morals force him to perform the surgery on the young child, saving his life and forfeiting the mayor's. All of a sudden, Dr. Tenma's world is turned upside down by his decision leading to the loss of everything he previously had. A doctor is taught to believe that all life is equal; however, when a series of murders occur in the vicinity of Dr. Tenma, all of the evidence pointing to the young child who he saved, Tenma's beliefs are shaken. Naoki Urasawa's Monster is a tale full of mystery, suspense and intrigue as Dr. Tenma journeys to find out the true identity of the young child. In turn, the fate of the world may depend on it.
I watched this anime couple days ago and I really liked this. There is character named Johan witch is villain of this anime and he is really great villain. I would say that he is one of my favorite villains so far. This anime probably would feel very long to watch because there is 74 episodes and this is quite a dark all the time. But I think it wasn't so long when you have started watching it. So if you like mystery and thriller genres this would be quite a great choice.
I have drawn some fan arts from this anime and finished two of them. So I put the finished ones here.
So here you go:
